|Subject: Rodent Mouse Motel, Screened Intake air so No Mouse Motel Sat Apr 15, 2017 1:44 pm|| |
I have had a couple of Bikes that have had a Mouse Build a Nest in the air Filter Box, over the Winter, when the bike is Parked.
I bought a roll of small hole wire mesh screen Stainless steel wire mesh.
I cut it larger than the size of the air Intake on the air filter Box cover.
Fold it over the edges of the air intake, then use a Ty-wrap/Zip Tie to hold the screen in place.
Zero chance of a rodent Entering, the "Air Intake Inn"
I also cover the exhaust tube exit hole, to make sure as that would be a little harder to clean out and create quite a small once the engine starts and has run for a while.
It may not be something that happens very often, BUT!!!
If it does, it is a bit of a pain.
